Ephraim Halevy

 
FORMER HEAD OF ISRAELI MOSSAD TO BE IN WINNIPEG TO DELIVER THE KANEE DISTINGUISHED LECTURE 2012

posted December 14, 2011

The Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada is pleased to announce that the featured speaker for the 2012 Sol and Florence Kanee Distinguished Lecture Series will be Efraim Halevy, former head of the Mossad, Israel’s Institute of intelligence and Special Operations. The lecture will take place on Thursday, May 3, at 8:00 P.M. at Shaare Zedek Synagogue, 561 Wellington Crescent.
Born in England, Halevy immigrated to Israel in 1948. A Mossad officer since 1961, he rose in the ranks to eventually head the Institute from 1998 to 2002. He has also served as ambassador to the European Union and the personal secret envoy for five Israeli prime ministers to kings, presidents, prime ministers and other world leaders. In his book, Man in the Shadows: Inside the Middle East Crisis with a Director of Israel’s Mossad (2008), he provides a fascinating and unprecedented portrait of the Middle East crisis.
Since his retirement from the Mossad in 2003, Mr. Halevy has headed the prestigious Shasha Centre of Strategic Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His editorials can be frequently read in the pages of publications such as the Jerusalem Post.
The Sol and Florence Kanee Distinguished Lecturer Series is presented annually by the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada.   The JHC’s mission is to preserve and disseminate information about the history of the Jews of Western Canada, especially in Manitoba, and to raise awareness and understanding of the history of the Holocaust through education.
